Ignition switch removal 87 dodge ramcharger

I believe the ignition switch is bad. it just spins and won't start the truck. It has a tilt steering wheel. i don't see any pins, screw or anything which to remove, so the switch will come out.

SOURCE: do my 2004 dodge intrepid have a kill switch?

Your dodge has an antitheft system that shuts down the ignition and fuel system when the lock was tampered with. This is why they did not take the car your anti theft system did exactly what it was designed to do. You will need to get it to the dealer to get the system reset.

You've got to be very well versed in steering assemblies before attempting to do this. There are very strong springs int there and if not carefully positioned they can hurt you severely. You must first remove the wheel with a steering puller set. Make sure that the wheel is in the upper most position, first. then pull the wheel. keep track of the order in which the parts come out.Taking pix along the way often lend to ease the reassembly. Use the circlip removal tool to remove the clip holding the lock plate down.By now you'll be able to see the turn signal switch. remove the lever hold down screw and slide the turn lever out.Remove the three retaining screws for the switch and pull it straight towards you enough to lay it to the side. No need to diconnect the wires.Once you've finished with this, take the tilt pin remover from the set and while keeping a slihght pressure on the respective side, 9:00 for the left pin, 3:00 for the right. Remove the pins and then you'll be able to slide the collar up and away enough to get at the tilt lever. That's all. Reverse the order for assembly. Thanks, Dana

SOURCE: Remove headlight assembly from a 2001 Dodge Ram

On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

Did you turn the bearing adjusters on the ends? They are held still with little bolts.

My 1987 Dodge Ramcharger seems to have a dead short. Keeps burning out the tail lights, has burned out coil and ignition in the past several times, window units don't work now but didn't work on...

A short won't cause such things. I would bet your alternator/regulator is putting out too much voltage.. It should be no more than 14.8 volts MAX and more like 13.x . Check the voltage while the engine is running at least 2000 rpms.

All the alternator does is charge the battery while you drive. Check if your new battery is dead. But I suspect some wire between the ignition and the starter is off or wrong.
